A Apartment That Will Conquer You for Your Taste

A Apartment That Will Conquer You for Your Taste

In this Book of Ideas we will visit a great-looking, eclectic style apartment combining classic touches with contemporary design, luxury and practicality, comfort and elegance in a multifaceted and multifaceted interior design project from France. Let’s get together for this little dream. Follow us.

Ideas for your corridor

A space often overlooked is that of the corridor. In this project we can see how it is possible to make it a fascinating environment. The exposed stone wall is enhanced by the presence of a targeted and naturally enlarged illumination with a large mirror, which recalls and multiplies the materiality of the stone. To complete the configuration, a large photograph.

Spatial distribution

In the kitchen, as we see, we find a perfect space distribution. The large central wood table is embraced by workbenches and lightweight wooden shelves. The chairs are of different materials and shapes, reinforcing the eclectic style of the apartment. The exposed ceiling beams are enhanced by the suspension lamps, for a retro touch of great impact.

Kitchen and living together

The limited size of the apartment is exploited to perfection through an open configuration that holds together different areas. Kitchen and living room are made in one room thanks to a perfect distribution of furnishing accessories. The accentuated chromaticities of the electric blue sofa and the presence of a dark wood cabinet guarantee a smooth transition between the different areas.

Natural and artificial lighting

Illumination is of fundamental importance in the project, able to harmonize natural and artificial light to locate the different areas precisely and fluidly, separating the areas dedicated to the kitchen and those dedicated to the living area.

Elegant and rich in style

The living area exploits the accentuated chromaticity of the sofas, creating a combination of material of great elegance. The walls with the stone in the foreground add a rustic and informal touch to space, intimate and lively at the same time.

We carefully study artificial lighting

In order to make the kitchen more functional, in addition to natural light, it is important to carefully study the natural illumination: we therefore expect a capillary system that directs the light on the different areas of work. If we look for a few tips we might read ‘7 reasons to have an island in the kitchen’.

We do not underestimate the importance of shelves

As a last tip, but not least, remember not to underestimate the importance of the shelves: fundamental to keep everything in sight and at your fingertips. Especially when the space available for the hangars is reduced.

Classic and functional

The bathroom, as we see it, resembles the style eclecticism combining modern and retro in an elegant and functional setting, featuring a classic two-color bathtub.…

From Grandma House to Chic Apartment (Palermo)

From Grandma House to Chic Apartment (Palermo)

This apartment is a project by DANIELA INZERILLO, architect and relooker, which has literally upset the style of an old and obsolete house transforming it into something sophisticated and in keeping with the times! The most important change has affected the distribution system from the traditional division into environments, the modern concept of open space has shifted.

The living area is now a fluid space, where the various environments are connected and communication is facilitated. On the other hand, over time, habits have changed a lot and it is increasingly rare to engage in slow cooking or to organize formal lunches or dinners. Instead, it tends to privilege relaxation and company, given the hectic pace, and therefore a unique and continuous space will certainly respond better to new housing needs. The extremely welcoming living room and dining room will surprise you and the kitchen … definitely has something extra!

The kitchen before and after

You do not need an expert eye to realize that the kitchen before the job left much to be desired. At organizational level, there was absolutely a need for a renewal and stylistic … are words needed

The new kitchen is totally open on the rest of the living area and in this way is also much brighter. Light, in fact, is a feature characterizing the project, which gives a lot of personality! Note the spotlights on the daytime opening and the Led lights that illuminate the work area.

The new open-plan facility

The new open space setting definitely gives a much more contemporary look to the living area, which was, with the separation walls and the dark wooden doors, much more damp.

The stay before and after

In the living room there were really too many items and they were crowded without an apparent criterion, with the result of a great disorder, a chaotic, no restful look. Now the living room is characterized by a classic modernity, with an elegant atmosphere, suitable for receiving guests with a certain degree of sophistication but without exaggerating, maintaining a relaxed and informal climate.

An area for informal meals

The kitchen is open on two sides, from a tall one to the dining room and then to the living room, on the other it transforms the work space into a comfortable plan for informal and fast meals, such as breakfast. Very beautiful the suspended lights that complete this space, with that slim and elongated shape, a real shot of design!


Also in the bedroom we find a pleasant play of lights, which brings a bit of dynamism on the head wall and makes the atmosphere warm and cozy – thanks also to the presence of wood. Really impressed the shabby lamp detail on the left!…

The Role Of The Leader Is Comparable To That Of A Football Coach

The Role Of The Leader Is Comparable To That Of A Football Coach

Leadership, the ability and the art of creating and managing the consensus around an idea and a project is always accompanied by some attitudes and dispositions that can be recognized and trained as determinants in the formation of driving behaviors.

First, the ability to build relationships of trust, which must of course be reciprocal, and thus continuously fed binary options. Each person translates in its express their own way of being and feeling, as well as to think; for this reason, a good leader must be able to communicate, this term the ability to enhance all of the verbal language tools and especially nonverbal to convey feelings, emotions, attention and security.

A strong emphasis on the sense of knowledge sharing and the ability to collaborate, which depends on the atmosphere, the climate of the organization and its culture; this is a responsibility that the leaders can not evade. He is aware that, to succeed, must be able to know how to use the full capability of its employees by organizing them into teams, guiding them to effective collaboration and delegating to each his share of tasks and responsibilities. The leader’s role is comparable to that of a football manager he will never enter the field because his contribution is to prepare men to win any challenge, dragging them in difficult times and frenandoli in successful occasions; He must agree to be considered the culprit in the case of failure, but give back and share with all the merits of a victory.

One of the pillars that form the basis of good leader, you also know how to handle conflicts. To demonstrate this capability the leader must be able to listen to the ideas of others; define and circumscribe the problem; weigh the facts (which are objective), distinguishing them from opinions (which are subjective); learn to seek compromise; able to satisfy the conflicting demands; and, finally, use the flexible thinking, because you can solve a situation of impasse, finding a third way or proposing an innovative solution that solves everything and systems.

True leaders do not just play a role, but they are brought to build a horizon (vision) for which to strive. The vision comes from a mental process that helps to pass from the known to the unknown, the plan for the future, starting from an innovative reconstruction of facts, hopes, dreams, risks and opportunities.…

An Elegant Vase To Transform A Small Bathroom

An Elegant Vase To Transform A Small Bathroom

In a small apartment, the smallest room is almost always the bathroom. That said, we do not believe that the decoration should be neglected. In the image, we can see how the red flowers completely change the feeling that space, predominantly white, conveys. A good solution to provide depth to the environment is the placement of a large mirror. Simple and elegant.

The importance of the mirrors

Rare are the times in which, in small apartments, the spaces appear integrated. This is a good solution when trying to further expand the environments that visually connect different areas of the house. However, some people prefer independent spaces, each with its own personality. In this project, we can see how a large wall separates the living room and kitchen areas. But is not any wall. The wall is completely covered with mirrors that offer a greater depth and distribute the light more evenly.

A vertical garden

For those who love plants, but has little room to have in abundance, there is the possibility of installing of vertical gardens. And ‘the case of this apartment. The vertical garden has a strong presence in space, making it more elegant and isolating both from a thermal point of view that acoustic.

Performance Ministation Air 2

Performance Ministation Air 2

By testing with the Crystal Disk Mark the Hard Disk Drive Wifi MiniStation Air 2, it is a good unit with performance that is appropriate for the category we find results that are absolutely aligned with 109MB s reading and about 87MB s in writing. In reality, trying to transfer data to the disk I had quietly peaks over 110MB s with very large files (4GB).

Despite this margin note thanks to DLNA technology, you can leverage the disk with one of hundreds of applications on the devices we use.Using the notebook, you can access the MiniStation Air 2 simply by connecting to the network created by it and typing in any browser the address connected to the MiniStation Air 2, it will be essential to connect to the Internet itself via a special section on the browser itself (because on android, as mentioned above, the crasha application unfortunately) then it will be enough to select the homeID SSID and enter its password. If you do not have access control (as in my case) the connection will be a matter of seconds.

By recapitulating With the Wi-Fi in your device (tablets, notebooks, smartphones) you connect to the network created by the Hard Disk Wifi Ministation Air 2; From the application, or rather from the browser, you can navigate through your home network so you can enjoy both disk and internet content (more information on how to connect is available on the booklet and even better in the pdf Downloadable support from the Buffalo site).

It is therefore easy to connect to the Hard Disk Wifi MiniStation Air 2 and enjoy content even in cases where there is no real app to connect to it for example, in my case I tried connecting it to a smart tv with wifi; Once identified the Ministat network, the connected devices directly featured the disk with which it was possible to stream all the content supported by the tv (so .avi and .mkv without the least problem) via the DLNA.

As for Buffalo’s directions, the Hard Disk Wifi actually supports up to 8 simultaneous connections and up to 3 streams without any slowdowns in streaming – satisfactory for having only one 2.4ghz band. The disk has a powerful enough wifi that can easily cover the two floors of the home if positioned strategically at the center of it; Otherwise, in some parts of the house you will not have coverage (as opposed to what happens with a router positioned at the same point). When we are far enough away from the MiniStation Air 2, the speed drops, but not too much, and it is still possible to stream without too much trouble.…

Making Anonymous Calls

The reasons why you might need to hide their own smartphone or tablet phone number are different and range from mere entertainment up to standard requirements.

Or you may need the option Private number or unknown number when making a call to a person who is feared may behave like a stalker and call back so many times. Unfortunately, mobile operators such as TIM, Wind, Vodafone and 3 do not offer to holders of smartphone mobile phones Android, iOS and Windows so many alternatives to avoid being bothered by others, so remain in the anonymity is sometimes essential.

An Unbelievable Studio Manages To Organize Everything In Only 21 sqm

An Unbelievable Studio Manages To Organize Everything In Only 21 sqm

Living in big cities is, in some cases, synonymous with small houses. A Portuguese architect wanted to challenge the limits imposed by urban constructions, creating highly innovative solutions. They do not count the square meters and the magnitudes because the intent is just to exploit the environment to the maximum.

In this regard we would like to offer you an example of a studio that has undergone a truly amazing transformation. The space available, of only 21 sqm, was designed to be familiar, welcoming, without forgetting good taste. Work has been carried out by a team specializing in interior architecture where construction and refurbishment are essential. The studio, in the city of Lisbon, wants to combine functionality and design without ever forgetting its true original identity.

Inspirations from the past

Located in the center of the Portuguese capital, the apartment is characterized by traditional elements of the territory’s architecture and illuminated by the light that pervades the city. Time has made the environment completely degraded, but there have been small elements and materials that have served as inspiration to best tackle recovery.

Small things

Given the space dimension, architects preferred to opt for a unique environment but can combine different functions. From the picture it is clear how natural materials have been rewarded, broken by some color notes that light up the atmosphere. The space seems even wider thanks to the predominance of white color, which, together with the minimal complement, can give more luminosity to the room.

Two spaces in one

The main purpose of the apartment was to create two different functional spaces in one the first of the more private character used in the sleeping area, the other with a more convivial atmosphere consisting of kitchen and living. The distinction between the two areas was underlined by the modification of the roof and pavement which is slightly higher in the living area.

The yellow color is predominant and transmits feelings such as cheerfulness and positivity. Wood instead, chosen as a material, is specially designed to keep the old house intact, giving a touch of extra heat.

Flooring in the mosaic-shaped geometric space is the great protagonist that makes the environment even more special. The decisive character of this choice is to give the space a minimalist, but not monotonous style.

The bathroom area

The bathroom area, continues with the geometric and decisive flooring, with the joining of a shower coating on the green tones that can balance and harm the environment. The missing parts of the studio have been furnished with simple accessories, but thanks to the color and geometry game you have been able to create a truly original environment.…

Itineraries of the Tuscan-Emilian Apennines the Pietra di Bismantova

Itineraries of the Tuscan-Emilian Apennines the Pietra di Bismantova

Among the mountains of the Tuscan-Emilian Apennines, as a silent guard over Castelnovo Ne Monti stands the Pietra di Bismantova, the one that for its shape and grandeur has inspired Dante for his Purgatory.

The stone is nothing but a large rock mass with an unusual shape some say it has the shape of a ship, some see a simple rectangle and some strange giant trapeze, in short, the interpretation is free and the imagination indulges.

As explained by the explanatory signs placed along the way, the Stone was born about 15 million years ago, during the Middle Middle-Age Miocene, when the Apennines were still completely covered with water. In fact, many fossils have been found on this sandstone boulder worked by time and erosion shells, sea urchins, molluscs, algae are just some of the protagonists of the geological theme.

Besides the geology, literature and nature are the other salient components linked to this environment, considered one of the most pleasant and suggestive hiking trails of the Reggio Apennines.

The first was linked to the great poet, who described this place in canto IV del Purgatorio; the second is the one that surrounds the visitor during his walk up to the summit, a varied vegetation that leads to a breathtaking view that shows the wide valley and the whole mountain range, including the Ventasso and the Verzasca.

How to move and what to see

What Dante has stopped in Castelnovo is all a probable, but I have almost completely climbed the purgatory and now I will tell you how it is better to move. The road that leads from the village to the stone is passable by car to a large square used as a parking lot, where there are also small picnic tables, a restaurant, public baths and a lookout point in short, all excellent ideas for a nice after walk!

Leave the car, continue on foot and the path is twofold you can choose whether to go into the woods, immediately to the left of the parking lot, or go straight up the stairs, to see more the view before entering the woods to the hermitage , the refuge and the railways of the Alpini.

In five minutes you reach the hermitage and the church dedicated to the Madonna di Bismantova, both leaning against the rocky wall and undergoing renovation, it will reopen on September 9th 2017. Not far from here, the Rifugio della Pietra, a bar restaurant with exposed not only the explanatory panels about Dante and Virgilio, but also very suggestive photos of the place and of the slackliners’ performances, which are often found here for their adrenaline performances.

La Pietra is also a place of climbing, under these three structures, there is a path in the woods that leads, instead, to the via ferrata, a place often used as a rock gym.

Depending on the step and the path that one chooses to follow – there are many organized treks that make hikers take several paths before reaching the summit – the peak of 1047 m. you can reach it with ease and ease and, despite the last stretch is a bit ‘challenging, the show that offers the view is able to satisfy all five senses.…

Which Museums In Milan Are Worth Visiting An Itinerary For All Budgets

Which Museums In Milan Are Worth Visiting An Itinerary For All Budgets

Museums in Milan

There are many museums that Milan hosts on its metropolitan ground, some located in the central circle, others in the outer ones; most of considerable width, but the smaller and hidden ones have nothing to envy to the big names.

Personally I am a lover of museums, if I have the opportunity I visit even more than one a day, and that is why, with this article, I want to tell you the three that I prefer in the Lombard capital.

Along one of the main courses in Milan, in Via Magenta, in a setting of beauty and historical importance, the city’s Archaeological Museum is located.

Inside there are exhibits dating back to different eras from Prehistory to Roman times up to the Middle Ages. In many cases the explanations, shown on the explicative panels on display, are available to everyone, young and old.

One of the must-sees is the Patera di Parabiago, one of the most important finds found during the excavations of 1907 in the town of the Milanese province. This is a silver ritual plate of the fourth century, finely worked and made in perspective of the cover of a funeral urn.

The museum itinerary is interesting because it allows the visitor not only to see the interior, but also the external ones thanks to the walkway that connects the Roman area to the tower hosting the other sections (Etruscan, Greek and medieval).

Before reaching the aforementioned modern tower, one can admire the old ones where, in one of them, there is a cycle of frescoes from the well-preserved medieval period. Returning to the starting point, it is possible not only to visit the small and well-stocked bookshop, but also the underground floor set up for temporary exhibitions, one of the best on the excavations in the Fayum in Egypt.

Once out of the museum, we recommend the visit to San Maurizio to the major monastery, located right next the frescoes in the chapels and the choir in front of the central altar are rare and make this church a sort of Sistine Chapel Milanese.

Between the Brera area and the fashion streets stands the Museo del Risorgimento housed inside Palazzo Moriggia. Spread over an entire floor, it is divided into several sections the Napoleonic era, the Five Days of Milan, 1848, the Wars of Independence, the Garibaldi section. Here are exhibited weapons and uniforms of the time, but also numerous paintings depicting famous people, such as Cavour, Napoleon, Garibaldi, and field battles, such as that of Custoza or Novara.

The must to see, however, are others! This is the kit with which Napoleon was crowned king of Italy in the Duomo of Milan, May 26, 1805; the original copy of Le mie prigioni by Silvio Pellico and the poster with his conviction; the cast of the hand of Giuseppe Garibaldi and the desk of Mazzini.…

An Apartment That Combines Past And Present

An Apartment That Combines Past And Present

The smells, the colors, the textures that have characterized our childhood home, very influencing the idea of ??ideal home that each of us is built. Our past is the safety, of course, the good, makes us feel protected and therefore it would be a mistake not to enhance it and leave it outside the door. Of course, times change, but this does not mean that the past can not coexist with current fashions and the new architectural conceptions Interior. An example is precisely the project that we are going to offer, renovating an apartment in Treviso by the architectural firm of Exit.

irregular geometries entrance

The apartment in need of an intervention aimed to reorganize the distribution of the interior of the mold rather traditional environments, a rejuvenation but has not even included the furnishings. But let’s start with order and start from the entrance. A resounding clean lines and shades welcomes us into the new living area. One item in particular catches our attention, a septum, half masonry separating the entrance from the rest of the environment. The profile we notice shall not be a regular and common … but we discover what it is …

concealing libraries practices

A division, yes, but clever, original and functional! On the one hand and on the other this square conceals element of the boxes intended for the library, which gives deep breath and freshness to the environment. The upper part, finally, is left free, and connects the two areas allowing the passage of light.

The angle Tv

Perfectly camouflaged with the wall, to the right of the lease is a just a white wardrobe, an ideal solution to create more useful containers corners at home. On the other side of the partition, however, it embodies a succession of bookcases and shelves that give life to a modern TV corner. Finally, situated on a large antique carpet, we find a beautiful chaise longue design. This is the Longe Chair by Charles & Ray Eames, distributed by Vitra.

The entire booking

But we try to change perspective, and we take a look entire stay. It is clear that, in addition to the outline of walls and vertical elements thoroughly modern, the rest of the furnishings embrace a more classical style and at times conservative. The dark wood gives a warm and enveloping touch, as the shades of the sofa and wooden furniture. There are many beautiful classic rugs that already belonged to the family, and that give the room an incredible personality.…
